Imagine if the popular iPhone game Angry Birds was made into a movie, and imagine that movie was directed by Michael Bay… or alternatively just press play below.

That's because someone has done all the imagining for you and this faux-trailer shows what it could be like if Angry Birds become the latest computer game to receive the Hollywood treatment.

In the two-minute trailer a soldier is tasked with rescuing eggs which have been left behind enemy lines. He is then introduced to the catapult and disturbing real-life Angry Birds.

The video was created by Rooster Teeth and is very-much a spoof… for now. Although given what has happened to other games-turned films this could well happen.

A University of Lincoln student has made a selection of impressive adverts adverts for his esteemed academic institution featuring dinosaurs, fire and zombies.

Media Production student Tom Ridgewell, 20, says his 'banned' adverts - shot in his own time around his course - are a step up from the usual bland and boring university TV adverts.

And while we doubt we'll see them on TV anytime soon, they've certainly proved a hit online… and probably even prompted some prospective students to consider going to the University of Lincoln.

It's safe to say a 3am news broadcast on a local Australian radio station wouldn't normally get the biggest of audiences.

But when newsreader Kate Wilson suffered a hiccuping fit during a recent report, it made it a viral hit all around the world.

Wilson had only just started the early morning report on 3AW when she first hiccupped while giving the time as "three o'clo-HIC".

Over the next three minutes she proceeded to hiccup another 20 times as she spoke about Gaddafi, the New Zealand earthquake and the sports headlines.

While a lesser newsreader would have given up or burst out laughing, Wilson tried to carry on… and listening to this we are glad she did.
